Raised by 7 people in 1 month
I am a single father of 3  girls,  3-4 and 10,  i am in a program called tanf,  they give me a small amount of money per month to help me get by. i do classes called  SPOKES   which is a requirement, this helps me gain new skills so i can get a job and  when your case worker gives you a set of hours each week  you have to do them. If you do not do them, they take away all the help they give you. I am in this program because of my medical condition,  Last march 17th i regained my  ability to walk, its not great, but sure beats using a wheel chair.  and  ever since i regained it i have been in this program earning certificate's  in MS office  to help me get a job.  I have been  applying for them, But they wont hire me.   on Monday 3-19-2018  on my way home up peters run road at the top, My engine in my 2008 kia optima blew up, with my kids in the car with me. I can truly greatful my neighbors was around and i was close to home so they was able to get them home safely.  My car before it did that had issues and i was trying so hard to get  each one dealt with, but it died before i could,  Now i am left with no way to do my classes or  go anywhere, i an severely limited on who can take me places and  i cant get my hours at my class now.  Where i live its impossible to walk to a bus station etc, specially with my kids and mobility issues, its atleast 5 miles to the nearest one. i need my car fixed,  Without it i am going to lose all the help i get,  No more money, which means i cant  pay my electric and if i cant pay that because of the type of housing i am in, i will get evicted, Its  in my lease.  i called around and checked everywhere, i can not find help on getting my car fixed, It needs the engine replaced, i was told between 2500 and 4000.   and its a must, it is literally impossible for me to get a job, do my classes etc without my car. i have week maybe 2 weeks before my case worker penalizes me and takes the help i get. i worked hard to get to where i am now and i am fighting hard to get further and find a job, without that car im 100% done for and i dont know what else to do, so here i am on gofundme praying  there is people out there with a heart and can try and help me. I hate asking for help and i hate begging, But today im begging everyone to please help me before i lose all that i worked hard for. If you can not help me, Please  share this as much as  possible, i greatly apperciate any and all help anyone is willing to do. my paypal is fatboy21007@comcast.net if you wish to help me and want to help through that.  Thank you to all that share and do what ya can for me

Managed to temp. Solve my rides to class, but this is a VERY short term thing and the person helping me is risking there job and getting alotta debt to get me to this class, i also adjusted the amount i need to replace the engine, i found several places willing to do it for 2800-3000. I ask anyone, please help me, there is 0 way for me to do this on my own cause of where i live, Thank you to all who try to help and share it.
